Wet Paint Festival 2021
Now in its 17th year, this annual, outdoor event is a celebration of plein air painting. The Wet Paint Festival provides the community with the unique opportunity to observe some of Long Island's top plein air painters as they capture the area's historic and natural beauty. Like last year, Gallery North will slightly modify plans for the festival. In an effort to maintain both the goals of the event and continued social distancing guidelines, the Gallery invites participating artists to create works in public or in solitude during the week of the festival.
Gallery staff will also visit featured locations to arrange a few, optional recorded "virtual visits." Participating artists will have the option (not required) to work with staff to record a discussion of your process or an informal interview. These "virtual visits" will then be posted on social media and on our website to both promote the event and to allow the public to understand and experience the process of plein air painting.
